Publisher's Summary

Who was Rumi, and how does he continue to speak to us today? On Song of the Sun, Andrew Harvey, the Oxford-trained authority on Rumi and author of several modern spiritual classics, takes us inside the extraordinary life and teachings of this prophet and poet. Harvey sifts through the many legends and tales associated with Rumi's life to reveal a rich and inspiring portrait of what a human being in love with and empowered by God can become. He mines the thousands of odes and quatrains composed by Rumi, and shares the most sumptuous and ecstatic works, all with clear relevance to our spiritual lives today. At a time when we are hungry for a divine vision of our world as it can be - and should be - Song of the Sun is an invitation to Rumi's most sacred and glorious feast.

Beautiful Poetry, Beautiful Reading

I'm totally happy with having purchased this audio book.

Rumi is/was new to me. Fascinating biography, fantastic poetry and cleary the author, who doubles as the presenter is both knowledgable and in love with his subject.

Other reviewers seem to have had problems withe delivery/speech pattern of the author. I can only put it down to his English accent, though for me his joy for the subject radiates on the recording and brings the emotionality of the subject to the fore.

A winner!

Excellent

This audio book is only for those who understand and want to reach out to the mystical side of life. Harvey is an excellent spokesperson for the Mystic poet Rumi and his slow manner of speech is perfect for a greater understanding into the depth of Rumi's beautiful poetry. I give this reading a definite 5 stars - this is one of the few audiobooks that I have that I will listen to over and over.
